The University of Missouri’s Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) Postdoctoral Program is designed to develop scholars for tenure-track faculty positions at the University of Missouri and elsewhere. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented in a particular discipline or through other experience and training. Postdoctoral positions are typically for two years and provide research, teaching, and professional development opportunities.
The stipend is a minimum of $60,000 per year plus University benefits and professional development funds. Some disciplines may provide additional salary commensurate with standards in their field of study.
To be eligible for this program, applicants must have completed their doctoral degree, or expect to complete their degree no later than July 1, 2023.
Further details are available at the PFFFD website.
The deadline to apply for the position is September 30, 2022.
Applicants whose research interests are in hydroclimatology, earth system modeling, climate change science, adaptation and mitigation and/or irrigation and water resources engineering may contact me (Noel Aloysius – [email protected]) before applying.
